This is my post for Thursday December 5th…

Today we had the most beautiful snow fall.. It’s the kind of snow fall you see on Christmas Cards… Big fluffy flakes that land on your nose and melt away slowly… I went out to shovel the snow and it really is heavy… There is so much moisture in the fallen snow.. If you are out there and have to shovel snow, be very careful… Also, watch out where you walk it will be slippery… Take good care out there… I’ll be back to see you on Tuesday December 5th… Till then have a great weekend… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ย

Winter.. Yuck!

I will be writing from this blog, as http://www.marionbell.com is having some difficulties.. What they are I have no idea.. Till I get the site mended I will write on this blog site.. I thank you for all your patience in this matter..ย 

It seems to be the time of the season for snow to fall.. Not only will snow fall but temperatures will take a big drop as well.. The snow has been falling here all day long.. There is a call for snow into Tuesday, and that weather is supposed to be quite nasty.. So, if you live around where I do.. (Canada)ย  Be careful out there on the roads.. The conditions have changed and you will need to pay attention to your surroundings.. And for goodness sakes,, “Slow down”ย  your life depends upon road conditions and your speed.. Please be safe…

Today, was remembrance day… I watched the laying of wreaths for the veterans lost in the wars.. There was snow falling pretty hard, as the soldiers marched down the main street of our city.. I remember hearing an older fella answer the question he was asked.. “How do you keep warm?” ย  The man answered with a smile and a chuckle.. “I wore two pairs of pajamas.” He chuckled and said, “Shush, I don’t want anyone to know.” The reporter laughed along with him… Little did he know he was heard over the televisions in many homes, around the world.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This weekend, that has just passed was pleasant enough.. The yard got a leaf removal done.. There are still leaves on a few trees, and a plant of mine that is outside had a white bloom on it.. That plant and it’s bloom have all but died and been frozen.. I have rescued my pepper plant and have it under a grow light… It seems to be doing quite well so far.. Today, I seen some aphids on a couple leaves.. I cleaned them off and I am still wondering where the heck they would have come from.. Guess I will be googling later to find out how to protect this plant from these bugs.. The plant is inside the house and has been for a couple weeks now.. So, all I can do at this point is crush these bugs, and hope I got them all..ย

During this last weekend I took my first stab ever, at making a chicken chili.. The results turned out pretty darn good.. My daughter-in-law can not eat beef at all.. Her tummy says “No way” and in light of that I made it for her.. I really like the taste, and will surely make it again.. I went shopping at Costco, and the place is all festive looking.. Toys, clothes and books for young and old fill the isles.. The pretty colors of wrapping paper and large bows brought a real spark to the surroundings.. Personally, I am not any where near ready for that time of the season.. And, I dis-like shopping all together.. “Grrrr.” I know I will have to make a trip to the stores, but I will have to do that soon and get that over with… We have to find a new tree this year.. We just need a small one, as it is just the hubby and me.. I would imagine the children will plan a get together before the day.. I kind-a hope one of my kids will make Christmas dinner this year.. We will see.. If push comes to shove I will take on the task..

This Monday evening was our grandson’s last swim lesson… He received his certificate for being a good new swimmer.. He does pretty good.. Grand-parents were able to come take photos ofย  the babies in the water.. He was smiling most of the time.. At least till the dunk time came along.. He came out of the water spitting, and sneezing, as tiny tears rolled down his face.. It only took a minute for mom to turn those frowns into smiles.. He just turned six months old and is crawling, and spoke his first clear word.. That was Da Daโ€ฆย  To say the least dad was very happy… Mom, well not so much, but she just laughed it off… She was hoping for him to say momma first.. Now they need baby proof all the house, as he will be all over the place.. It’s cool sitting back and seeing him achieving his growth..ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my chatter for Thursday November 7th…

Today was cold, and snow fell on the ground.. Not much stayed, but some of it did and that’s not a good sign.. For all those that got more snow than us I feel your pain.. The gas prices will be hicked-up soon as skiers and snow boarders trek to the hills for fun.. I have yet to see a reason to raise those prices… Other than there is a lot of gouging money from the pockets of people… Why is there not something being done about this injustice.. Now we have the carbon tax added to the price of gas.. How wonderful for all of us.. The government needs the money to cover their frivolous spending.. And to think they are back in power again and can repeat their spending.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

These are my thoughts for Wednesday November 6th…

This day has been average for me.. The sun shone so bright today, and filled the living room with a soft inviting glow.. The trees still bend in the wind as so many days before.. The call for snow has chilled me to the bone.. I am dressed in layers to keep me warm.. Today was not a bad day.. It’s late as I finish the words that so many of you will read.. I only hope that you all enjoy the ramblings of an aging lady.. Take care and be safe.. gran driving red  lips (2).jpgMAGS… Till tomorrow pleasant dreams… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my chatter for Tuesday November 5th…

Today was a windy day, but later in the day the temperature went up to a balmy nine degrees Celsius.. It was actually quite nice outside.. I still have blooms in my garden and in some hanging pots.. The snow had lightly covered them with, but that did not stop them from growing.. I am very tempted to bring in the potted plants once the call for cold weather and snow comes.. They are so pretty, and I don’t want to see them die..ย  Oh well… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is Monday in a nut shell, for Tuesday October 29th…

I will not be on here for very long.. Today I was sick.. I don’t like it at all, and I don’t mind saying so.. I have no idea what this is but I’m hoping tomorrow is a better day.. Till tomorrow.. Wishing you all good health…

This is my blurb for Thursday October 24th…

How has everyone been doing this fine week? I have weathered the rain and not too bad of temperatures.. It’s not been cold, but not hot.. Tonight I watched a movie about a family that was caught in a tsunami while they were on holidays.. The family found each other in the end.. The destruction cause by the tsunami wave was devastating.. People were tossed by the raging waters, and it was hard to see why more were not killed.. I pray that will never happen here.. Well, take care of each other.. I wish you good fortune and happiness.. Till Tuesday.. Have a wonderful weekend and a great Friday… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Day dreaming…

This is my blurb for Wednesday October 23rd…

Hello everyone:: Today was a day filled with rain in the earlier part of the day.. The wind has been working very hard at shaking the leave from the tree branches.. Leaves dance down the street, flopping to and froe in the gusty wind.. There are so many leaves on the front lawn and there is not a leafy tree out the front of the house.. The wind has pushed leaves from houses up the street to our front yard.. This is the time of the season that tends to make more work for some and none of others.. The once red leaves on the tree outside the back yard fence, are now blown away.. The bare branches show their skinny limbs.. Fall is a mysterious time, but also a beautiful one…:) Enjoy your fall days, and take care of yourselves.. Till later.. Be safe..

This is my blurb for Tuesday October 22nd…

Hello everyone:: How has your day been? Mine has been unusually warm.. A breeze has been blowing with the slight hint of cool temperatures… I still have plants blooming in the garden, and the colors are beautiful.. Like a breathe of fresh air.. We are hoping that the weekend coming up will be just as pleasant as today.. There is still a lot of garden to get ready for the cold weather.. The man that plows our drive way in the winter put up his drive way markers today.. That’s a sure sign that we don’t have long before the bad weather starts.. I’m hoping that the white powdery stuff does not come early… Till later.. Be safe and help others when you have the means… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my banter for Friday October 4th…

Hello all you savvy people out there:: Thanksgiving is getting closer with each day.. The stores don’t seem to have the deals on turkey’s they used to.. Like everything else they are getting really expensive like all things we need to keep us alive.. I feel sorry for all the families that find it hard to feed their families.. The food banks will be hard at work making food hampers for the less fortunate.. If you can spare some money or even some food items.. Please drop them off at the food banks near you and make a hungry child’s Thanksgiving a happy one.. You enjoy your Thanksgivings as I will do the same.. Take care and be safe.. Till later.. Remember others who need help on this holiday… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

gran driving red  lips (2).jpgMAGS… See you when I return.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
